Concise Overview of Things Learned
Technical Area: Without prior experience in programming, I’ve learned how to use several features in R & Python to construct and visualize data. In addition, I’ve learned how to critically analyze scientific literature effectively.
Tools: I’ve been given introductory & intermediate training in R & Python. Using the lessons from webinars, I’ve figured out how to use figures in scientific literature to come up with unbiased conclusions.
Soft Skills: I’ve exercised my leadership skills by reaching out to team members to set up our happy hour this week & to begin collaborating to work on our deliverables.
Three Achievement Highlights
- Became proficient in using R & Python
- Learned how to critically analyze scientific literature.
- Made a ton of new connections on LinkedIn.
List of Meetings/ Training Attended Including Social Team Events
Unfortunately, I work a full time job so I’ve only been able to attend half the meetings in person, but when I’m not able to make it I make sure to read the notes/watch the recordings to keep up with the internship. Given this, I’ve been able to have full virtual participation so far.
Goals For The Upcoming Week
This week I would like to have 75% in-person attendance for meetings. On the other hand, my computers have been having trouble so I’d like to get my new laptop and finish all the homework I haven’t been able to complete.
